      Hey everyone! I am a new dog owner to a wonderful English Labrador. Stig is 11 months old & about 95 pounds. Big boy!

      He's my first dog EVER (always had cats as a child) & my husbands first dog since he was a child. It's been fun learning about this breed and figuring Stig out. There's never a dull day with him, and he makes me laugh multiple times a day. It hasn't been without some troubles though. He was diagnosed with panosteitis around 6 months old and has only had 2 flare ups...thank goodness! He's also had some trouble with ear infections which we're still trying to figure out.

      Stig loves to swim in the pool any chance he can, chase the cat, and LOVES every dog he meets. Dad is looking forward to duck hunting with him in the future.

      He is gorgeous! And Welcome! I have a 13 1/2 year old lab and a 9 month old lab - and I am figuring it all out as well. Stig looks so much like my parent's dog, Hershey - who we rescued at 9 months and who is currently staying with me again while they travel. I LOVE him - he is such a sweet heart - as is my older English lab. My 9 month old field lab; however, is a total scamp - so time will tell how this crazy one turns out! Have fun with your huge and beautiful dog. He must eat a TON!
